Real Wedding - Rose and David’s Stylish Spring Wedding At Swynford Manor

Real Wedding - Rose and David’s Stylish Spring Wedding At Swynford Manor | CHWV

This spectacular wedding venue in Cambridgeshire was the perfect place the happy couple’s chic, relaxed wedding day.

Swynford Manor was the first viewing we arranged when we started looking at venues as I already knew it was my favourite. From the moment we drove down the drive of, I just knew it was going to be everything I wanted and more. We loved the theme of the building and everything inside, the very light and relaxed feel of the conservatory and all of the finer details, especially the copper baths in each bedroom! We went out for a drink in the evening after our visit and we said there and then that Swynford Manor had to be our venue.”

“I always knew my wedding would be simple and elegant. We are a very relaxed couple who enjoy each other’s company so much; so we based our day around all the things that we wanted, not what we felt we may have to have because of traditions. Even before I found Swynford Manor, I wanted an old vintage style black and white theme that was also romantic and the theme couldn’t have fitted more perfectly to the venue. Everyone loved the theme and understood completely why we did it as soon as they walked inside. We brought some colour to the venue with deep red rose petals which I used to decorate the aisle, the tables and scattered in areas across the venue. I created a little space across from the top table that was dedicated to my mum, who sadly passed away a few years ago. It featured a hat that she had worn at my sister’s wedding along with a short poem, a candle and a few roses.”

“I absolutely loved my dress and it was so comfortable too! I tried on about eight different dresses, but I knew that this was the one. I wanted it to be different and special to me, so I made it bespoke by having a few alterations made to it. I wore a dainty hair accessory from Etsy and also a bracelet that my mum had given me a few years ago - it looked perfect with the dress. My shoes were from ASOS and my earrings were a present from Dave and they looked so pretty against the dress. Dave wore a white and black dinner jacket, which he wasn’t too sure on to begin with when I suggested it. When he saw it though he was sold and loved how dapper it looked. My bridesmaids all wore floor-length black dresses with draping over the shoulder and back and they all looked gorgeous!”

“We held our ceremony in The Study, and I walked down the aisle to beautiful music played by a violinist. We then had our reception drinks with a candy floss topper on each glass! We wanted a relaxed wedding breakfast, so we went for barbecue-style food and it went down a treat. In the evening we went for more comfort food choices and had pizza and fish finger ciabattas to keep everyone dancing all night.”

“It’s hard to choose my favourite moment, but I will never forget walking down the aisle with my dad, holding little Archie’s hand and making my way towards Dave. Something that also stood out for me was when Dave was doing his speech. We never wanted a huge wedding, but I was able to look around at everyone and have a reason as to why everybody was there and understand what difference they have made to our lives.”
